From the NY Times:
Among those coming to Mrs. Clintonâ€™s defense on Sunday was Robert L. Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, who appeared at a rally with her in Columbia, S.C. He said Mrs. Clinton did not mean to take any credit away from Dr. King, who, he said, had led a â€œmoral crusadeâ€ that ultimately had to be â€œwritten in to law.â€
â€œThat is the way the legislative process works in this nation and that takes political leadership,â€ he said. â€œThatâ€™s all Hillary was saying.â€
Mr. Johnson then veered into a new line of attack on Mr. Obama, in which he appeared at first to raise the specter of the candidateâ€™s drug use as a young man, a matter that Mr. Obama has written and spoken about candidly.
â€œTo me, as an African-American, I am frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues since Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood â€” and I wonâ€™t say what he was doing, but he said it in the book â€” when they have been involved.â€
